Alright, well yesterday I was working on a dart that would work in a tube clip, hadnt designed the tube clip yet, but I designed the dart...Lefty and BluearchNerfer put me up to it. Then I designed a clip, and wanted to test out my darts, so I built the clip, and its more reliable, cheaper, and easier to make then the rcsb barrel. It also has a bettr rof. The clip ended up working fine with regular darts, better even.

I call it the Tclip because it uses a T coupler as its base, and T stands for THIRST.

It rarely jams, and can hold many darts. It works better with brass, copper, and petg becaus the darts fit in there better than in cpvc. It can work in mildly powerful guns, 2k, blast bazooka, possibly mshot...

In these pictures I used cpvc, and brass. The brass worked better.

Damn, that's purty. I'm a-goin' to Home Depot today.
Like ompa said, how does the radt turn? Does it need a shortened dart?

EDIT- I spelled dart radt...

They are 1.5 inch darts, so it makes MORE sense now.

It falls in vertically, and then the air straightens it, and sends it through the barrel. If that clears it up. The darts have a loose fit in the T coupler, and since they are 1.5" darts, it doesnt take much to turn them.

I tested it with other guns, and I regrettfuly inform ya'll that the only gun powerful enough to use a Tclip is a Titan. back to the drawingboard.

I am curious as to the wear on the darts being shot out of the tclip. Not sure if you have fired the same dart enough times to show damage but if you do let me know.

Just as much as you would on a regular gun, I've tested.

Are you sure the firing doesnt work a bit of a curve into the darts? I know you could straighten it, I just have a hard time believing the foam is unaffected by the repeated bending. It does bend some when going from the clip to the barrel, right?

It really isnt bent much, and our foam is prety sturdy...It has no visible effect, and the darts path is perfecty straight.

Not really. It only works with powerful guns with big air tanks like the titan. I think it doesn't really "revolutionize" nerf, but it is a big break through.

What I don't understand is how it regulates. Does it fire all the shots out at once? Or does the air all escape by the time the second dart drops down? I doubt it would work with a springer. It could possibly work with the Mshot, and the BBB, not sure about others though.

It will only work on the Titan. The Blast Bazooka was able to launch the dart, however it was shooting more like a NF than a LBB.

Yes, but Moosey was talking about high powered guns... ahem... blasters, and the LBB is considered one. So, cranky was saying how other high powered blasters fail.
